43 in a Row for Hoops Team

The men’s bball team took care of business again tonight with a 81-49 win over Savannah State.  The win was the 43rd in a row at the Joyce Center for Notre Dame and improves their record on the season to 9-2.  Here are some notes from the victory.

  • Kyle McAlarney’s 8 points give him 1,002 career points making him the 49th player in Notre Dame history to eclipse 1,000 career points.

  • Tory Jackson and Ryan Ayers were the only other Notre Dame players in double figures with 10 points each.
  • Tyrone Nash played just 14 minutes, but scored 9 points and collected 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal.  Nash has been very productive in limited minutes this year and will hopefully continue to see more minutes.

    Savannah state beat MIchigan earlier this year. Maybe not right now but this win could look better if Sav St starts winning more games. They seemed like a good defensive team.

    Luke Harangody is a beast. He is always diving on the floor and hustleing. K-Mac was blanketed by 2 guys at all times. It was pretty tight D on him. TJ has way too many turnovers this year. He did it against Ohio st and he had i think 4 last night. We shredded their press pretty good but it did slow us down a bit. All in all good game for us though.
